Add an option to disable connection notifications in Vino

completed by: m4tx

  • Vino currently pops up a notification when a user connects to the system. Some users would like to disable the notification, as in , so a new GSettings option needs to be added to control this behaviour. There is no need to add anything to the UI to control this setting, as it should be hidden from most users because it would be a security risk. An old patch exists on the bug, which can be used as inspiration.
  • Expected results: An updated patch on which adds the GSetting and only shows connect notifications if it is enabled
  • Requirements: C programming, GTK+ programming, Git, English
